im assuming Nokia 920 runs on Windows Phone 8, and not regular Windows 8

The reasons why i dont like the Office-esque thing installed in Windows Phone 8, is because I dont see it as an Office Program at all..
Taking away such very basic tools such as Built-in Outline Bullets & Numbering Buttons forces anyone with any sort of Office need to use their online cloud office services.
in fact, the entire office development for windows phone 8 is exactly for this reason alone.. to give them access to an endless stream of private personal & corporate information..what any marketing, development, and R&D team would throw their teamleader into the volcano for
by creating an experience the end user hates so much, we'd be forced to resort to things like their office 365, and their own windows 8 tablet
its an attempt to increase sales of their office 365 cloud products, giving everyone access to their documents ONLY if our personal data is first transferred through their own online servers for review, inspection, idea fraud, & theft
and if the customer doesn't like that option, he is forced into spending money on a Windows 8 tablet device, and learn to carry it around along with their Windows 8 phone, again, just to be able to do the very most basic of office-related things
That would be all well and good if Windows Phone 8 Phones looked something like the Asus Padfone 2 and could snap into a Windows8 Tablet
Windows Phone 8 needs a Windowed-mode function, similar to a regular desktop experience, just as Windows 8 full version has, which allows it not only compatibility, but useability
its like the whole Mobile Office thing has been abandoned just so they can enjoy more swiping than any human should ever have to perform..
Even the office version that came with Win Mobile 2003 was way more useful than this Office13 Mobile 8 thingy, thats really just a marketing tease to try and dupe everyone into other services..
I guess I may just have to wait around for a Firefox OS, and hope they dont go the route of the silly-swipers
The reason I want a phone with more than basic call & text functionality is simply so i can be more productive.. I needed a PDA because it was a device that bridged the Office gap between my Desktop, Laptop, & Phone
Since 2003 I have hoped for PPT Creating & Editing software, and I thought for sure Word would be WAY more advanced, MUCH more like the Full Desktop versions..
but nope.. we've seemed to have taken off in the wrong direction.. bassackwards
Android has Office programs that function WAY more similarly to desktop Office, for PPTX, PDF, DOCX, XLSX, and more. but who on earth would really trust google, the only reason they likely even made an OS was to obtain Customer demographic & Psychographic info.. I'm sure the Android Phone was thought up by their marketing team as yet another tool for researching users.
But even if Android made a stylus-operated, Windowed-interface-based OS, I'd use it.. Does anyone actually need to Swipe their Office Documents into creation with their thumb as their on their little tricycle?
No.. and its impossible to do so.. U need to sit down and make and compose a good office document, if not, then you'd use Note, One-Note, Wordpad, or a Plain Text Editor...
i mean.. i feel like i'm the only person left on earth who needs a phone with Office functionality and would prefer the Windows 7-desktop-like interface.. a version of Windows 6 which is more like the Windows 7 x86 platform..
Windows 7 mobile i guess was released too early, and the name was stolen which should rightly belong to a mobile OS modeled more after the Windows 7 Desktop OS
what a messed up world we live in.
